If you were given the chance to receive and keep one memento from any of the stories of the Sherlock Holmes stories, which one would it be?
For example, you could ask for and receive: a pipe used by Holmes, the Persian slipper, magnifying glass, or any token of appreciation given to Holmes; any item used by Watson, such as the tin box or his notebook; or you can receive any other item in the Canon — a Napoleon bust, the orange pips, even the beryl coronet. You must decide which item would be the most endearing to you and why.
Only two rules apply:
- The item must be from the Canon itself, and not from a pastiche, movie, television or other media.
- You must agree to keep the item for the rest of your life, so you cannot immediately re-sell it (takes away the monetary value for greed purposes).
The Spring issue of the Baker Street Journal has arrived - with a special greeting to fans new to Sherlock Holmes.
